Using DNS leak test is a good way to establish which DNS provider you use.
We assume you use VPNBook, and after setting up your VPN, you test it with DNS leak.
You should have : 22.214.171.124 ca1.vpnbook.com OVH Hosting Canada, if you used vpnbook-ca1-tcp443.ovpn.
The result means you bypass your ISP surveillance at the DNS level. Your ISP is responsible for noticing users about illegal downloading of copyrighted material, but your VPN is blocking its ability to do network surveillance.
You can further test your VPN with this website : whatismyipaddress. You will appear to connect to the Web from a far away place, such as India, which means your real location is blocked.
Is it bad or good to use a VPN? For privacy, it is good.
